How To Simplify your Media Job Search

By: Andrew Regan

There are countless resources to turn to when looking for employment - from online job catalogues to company recruitment pages. However, chances are you have a pretty good idea of the type of job you're after. So why not target employment agencies that specialise in job placements within your field? You'll increase your chances of finding the position you want and speed up the process of job placement.

For instance, if you're looking for a job in the media industry, you may feel overwhelmed with your choices. Should you turn to employment agents who can do the searching for you, or should you opt to apply directly through media companies? Furthermore, you have the option of ploughing through the countless job listings on massive, all-inclusive online job catalogues. But while all of these resources will point you in the direction of jobs, how can you be sure you're gaining optimum exposure to the jobs you want most?

If you're decided on a particular field, such as the media jobs market - or even a particular position, such as a Media Project Manager or a Media Account Director - your best option could be to conduct a job search through a portal dedicated specifically to the media market. Regardless of whether you're searching for experienced media positions or entry level jobs, media market portals can put you in direct contact with media companies which are currently hiring - simplifying the search process considerably. Moreover, all the positions returned from your search will be within the media field; that means you'll have a larger pool of potential jobs to search through than if you were to go through an all-inclusive job site. You might even come across a media position you had never considered previously - opening up further opportunities in the media field.

But one of the greatest advantages of going through a specialised portal for your search for media jobs is that you'll save time. Instead of sorting through a plethora of irrelevant positions, you'll need only to browse through positions within your field. Your search will remain in your control, meaning you can see search results instantly. Moreover, you can often apply for suitable positions online, so you won't have to wait for calls from a job agency.

So remember: there are a number of places you can look for media jobs. But if you target media employment specialists, you'll speed up the process of finding the job you want!
